The printer uses the parallel port and has been using the same port and
cable for about 4 years and never unplugged. I will look at the pins but
they should be ok since it worked fine on my PC running XP, so yes same
cable. This same type of problem happened a few years back which was solved
my reinstalling the print driver.
I will look at the device manager when i stop at their house next but I know
it was not highlighted in yellow and was using the LPT1 port. I even tried
to delete the port and do a restart to reinstall it with no luck. I don't
know if it was ECP of EPP,
It was selected to use the LPT1 port and i tried adding a new port in there
to with no luck.
